Day 12 | Travis
Today was the last full day of working on the arc and it was a very productive day! I worked on building braces under the arc pretty much for most of the day and we have to build four. One of them just took 3 hours but I’m pretty confident we’ll get it done in the next day or 2. We are almost complete with it and I couldn’t be more excited to see the crowds of children and adults pour in to play on the playground. They have never really had anything like this and I think it will be just amazing to see. I had the privilege to witness a little girl maybe 4 or 5 years old who had no clue how to climb a cargo net or go down a slide, but we helped her and the look on her face was just priceless coming down the slide, watching her eyes bulge out was just an awesome experience for me to see. Tomorrow we go to the market and I will be very interested in seeing what they have here. I have loved the time I have spent here in Haiti, but as days go on I keep on thinking I get to see my mom, dad, Wyatt and Shay in only a few days and I can’t wait because I have missed them more than they may ever know. Glorifying God? It’s a humbling experience that we go through in our lives and that’s nothing but the truth!
